Last year, 49 teams, comprised of 500-plus individuals, participated in what has become an annual community-based, philanthropic endeavor, raising over $156,000 in donations and bringing the four-year total amount raised to $463,000. The money is used to fund life-saving cancer research studies, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention initiatives.

Kyra Miller, Community Manager, Relay for Life, said “to put the services that the ACS provides into a local context -- the Chathams are part of the ACS’s Northwest NJ Region, which last year served 1,510 cancer patients by providing them with, among other services: 581 rides to and from treatment; participation for 202 individuals in ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ workshops conducted by beauty professionals to help those undergoing cancer treatment with skin care, make-up, hair, and clothing issues; 186 free wigs and headscarves; and the facilitation of 54 ‘Reach to Recovery’ partnerships in which breast cancer survivors volunteer to provide support to those undergoing a breast cancer experience ranging from initial testing to diagnosis or treatment.”

Fourteen teams have already signed up for the 2017 campaign, which will culminate with a celebratory festival on Saturday, June 3 from 6 p.m. to midnight at Haas Field behind the Chatham Middle School. For more information, please contact Kyra Miller at 973-285- 8046 or at
